The Caley boss has signed eight players since the end of last season, which ended with the club sixth in the SPL table and just short of what would have been a place in Europe for the first time.

Spanish keeper Antonio Reguero made 24 appearances for Caley last term but, following the end of his one-year deal, Butcher is looking to bring in another keeper alongside the experienced Ryan Esson.

"The chairman Kenny Cameron gave me my budget towards the end of last season but that is pretty much all spent," said Butcher.

"I'd think once we get a keeper in that will be our last signing although you never know.

"The difference from last season is the players coming here are our own.

"I'm certainly not ruling out loaning in players. It is an avenue we would look at but maybe more towards the end of the transfer window."

Butcher has signed Curtis Allen, Ben Greenhalgh, Harry Hooman, Marley Watkins, James Vincent, Adam Evans, Danny Williams and Joe Gorman since the end of the 2012-13 season.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
